Durable lining (DL) is a deltamethrin-impregnated polyethylene material, which is designed to cover
domestic walls that would normally be sprayed with residual insecticide. The operational success of DL as a
long-lasting insecticidal substrate will be dependent on a high level of user acceptability as households must
maintain correctly installed linings on their walls for several years. Preliminary trials were undertaken to identify a
material to develop into a marketable wall lining and to assess its level of acceptability among rural and urban
populations
